I meant to add this photo on Monday and forgot. It’s a little bougainvillea blossom with the sun coming through. Reminds me of a Japanese lantern.
On to San Diego Wild Animal Park, or rather San Diego Zoo Safari Park. They’ve changed the name since I was there years ago. The park sits on 1800 acres and that’s what I like best about it. Zoos seem so confining. Here the animals have a lot more room to move about.
I had seen lorikeets in photos and never dreamed I’d see one in person or have one land on my head. They are so tame. Kids in the aviary loved how the birds would land on them:
You can feed the birds too, if you want.
Aren’t the colors incredible?
Of course, you’ll see lions, tigers and bears, and an elephant with her baby.
I didn’t take that many photos of the animals, because they were kind of far away and I didn’t have a zoom lens with me. Plus we were with my son and wanted to just enjoy being together.
Since it was autumn, I couldn’t resist shooting some of the trees changing color:
Finally, I don’t know the name of this little guy, but thought he looked so sweet sitting in the fading light. . . .
Hope your week’s going well so far. Valentine’s Day was especially nice this year.
